To keep weeds out of the beautiful Find A Grave garden....

First, I don't link to Burial Unknown Site Memorials as BU shouldn't be on FAG according to the guidelines of the website. The first criteria for making a memorial on FAG is having the burial site, as this is a grave registration site. When you made a BU, you have a chance of losing the memorial to the member who "Find A Grave" in the cemetery.

Second, I may or may not transfer outside of the guidelines to an established member. It is my choice. Long-time hard working-members, who are busy in surveying cemeteries and taking grave photos impress me more than someone who is collecting others' memorials for their personal goal or waiting for someone to find the burial sites for their numerous memorials made with an "unknown burial site".

Lastly, there are no duplicated memorials on FAG. If I find a duplicated memorial while researching this site, there is 99% chance that it will be deleted or merged eventually.

You may disagree with the guidelines but remember the guy who started Find A Grave wrote them. He is the boss.

Many of the memorials transferred to me were done without my request for them. These memorials have found a home and will be nurtured.

Also, thank you for all the flowers and tokens left on my family's memorial. They are all sincerely appreciated by me and my family.

Remember to check on the Discussion Forums here. They are very newsy, helpful and interesting!

I leave nasty postings on my profile page so others can see just how rude and stupid people can be to others. Most read and laugh. :)

Hello Linda,
I don't know if it is the same person. The dates and the name are Nearly exact matches. The date of death on the memorial in Virginia is just one day different than the one in Chapel Hills, Jacksonville and the date of birth is exact. I wonder is there a marker in the cemetery in Virginia? We know there is a marker in Chapel Hills. I just record what I see.

RE: JM
Would you like me to transfer JM to you as you know his grandmother? I would be happy to maintain his memorial but would be willing to transfer as you know the family closer than I do.

Hi Linda did not have your email so had to post this on your message board. I had the pleasure of meeting this young man (JM) at the wedding of my nephew in August, as they were good friends. I was shocked to hear what had happen to him from my nephew. I had made a photo of him dancing at the wedding with several kids. He seemed so full of life and joy that it is hard to image what happen to him. I wish I would have kept a copy of the photo of him dancing at the wedding. I am glad to hear there were so many at his funeral as it had to give some small comfort to his family to know how much he was loved. Thanks for emailing me. Saundra

RE: Help Needed
A few of the words look different, but basically it says: A loved one from us Has gone. A voice we/ loved is stilled. A /place is vacant in our/ home which never/ can be filled.
It is a basic funeral poem by an anonymous person.
Hope this helps you! Barb

RE: Jossephine Margaret Hale Alvis
The point is that when people are searching for Josephine Alvis they will NOT find her!!
Nobody will think of then searching for Jossephine... Why not Joephine... and 1000 other variations.
A solution: enter a note saying that the gravestone has Jossephine, but correct the name.

I found (and documented - for fun) no less than 263 variations of my surname in census transcriptions, earlier spelling mistakes (WHO could write in 1700??), documents, etc.
OF COURSE I corrected ALL of them where I could.

Furthermore when people are entering new photos, they usually do NOT check if there already is a memorial for that person, but even if they do check, and they look for Josephine, they will not find her AND ENTER A NEW MEMORIAL for her.
So far, in 14 days I found some 400 duplicates....

Maybe because of the existence of spelling checkers, people nowadays cannot write the name Josephine correctly EVEN WHEN IT IS CORRECT on gravestones and documents. I submitted some 3500 corrections so far, hoping that the quality of the info on Findagrave will improve.

YOU are one of less than 10 that have declined.
Just check Ancestry.com for census info for Josephine Alvis, and you will see that ONLY the gravestone has this error.
Have a nice day.
